New Delhi: Congress will organise a special camp at Varanasi in January next year to discuss ways to tackle the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and improve its performance in Uttar Pradesh.
"We will organise a special camp in Varanasi after Makar Sankranti (in January next year) to strengthen the party. The objective of this camp is to give the party a new lease of life and devise ways to fight BJP," party in charge Madhusudan Mistry told reporters.

He said, "At the camp, there would be deliberations about how to deal with Narendra Modi and his government's policies."
Referring to the Congress's debacle in the state in the Lok Sabha polls, Mistry said, "People have not forgotten Congress, but it was the party which had stopped reaching to them."
Mistry exhorted his party workers to reach out to people and adress their issues and not get disheartened by the defeat in the Parliamentary elections.
Congress had faced a crushing defeat in the Lok Sabha polls, winning just two seats that too won by its president Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi.
